About 2 years ago I started my job as a senior engineer.
About a year ago, my boss, the director, said he needed help with managing the group and promoted me to manager.
About 2 months ago, my boss told me that he wanted me to be back to an engineer.

For this and other reasons I started looking for a new job. Since my role is now engineer again and I was kinda doing that anyway (less managing and more engineering) for now 2 years I put that as my title on my resume. However, HR has not caught up and still as my title as manager in their system.

I have received an offer the job pending background checks. I'm worried about they will check my current employer and it was a manager even though my role is engineer. I have to give notice but I'm afraid to if I come back and that there's a discrepancy we don't want you anymore and then I'm out of a job. It's not a discrepancy because it's true its just HR has not caught up with the rollback of title.

What should I do? What will they check current employer for?

why would the new company care? If it comes up you can say they needed extra help with the management side but you still did engineering work. I wouldn't be concerned.. Now if you said you were a manager, when you had just been an engineer that might pose a problem.
but to answer your question they will typically ask employment dates, title, pay rate and if there are any comments about you

They are probably just looking to conform dates of employment rather than job titles. As long as you were actually employed there during the time you listed I wouldn't worry about it.
